Congratulations to Andy Chang, his daughter Patricia Moad (she’s the “mama” of Mamahune’s), and the Hilton Garden Inn Kauai Wailua Bay, on the opening of Mamahune tiki (they even have a volcano!) bar that now graces an “unused” portion of the Wailua resort located “where the river meets the sea.” The facility is open seven day a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Congratulations to the Koloa Union Church, which became the second Open and Affirming United Church of Christ church on Kauai to earn that certification! Dr. Rev. Alan Akana just returned from a three-month sabbatical (he’s hosting a special talk and slideshow on the sabbatical Tuesday from 3 p.m. at the Smith parsonage, aka Alan Akana Gallery), in time to join the core team and congregation and guests in the event. Kudos to Michael Horning, Tiffany Marrotte (was it her grandma who developed the dark red plumeria?), Penny Osuga, Lee Anderson and Becky Sakimae of the core team for their work in reaching the certification.
Looking for excitement during the Father’s Day weekend?
